A “Proper Job”? – Today, with the plethora of media platforms we all indulge in, the expansion of communal creativity within our communities, the focus on social engagement through the arts (Cobweb!), the creation and application of music in all it’s various glorious incarnations has never been so plentiful. My name’s Bill Connor, I’m a Cobweb member and one of the many who earn their living out of creative musical engagement of all kinds….Fancy finding out how, what, where, why,  etc….?Working Composer – A “Proper Job”?  come and join us Tuesday 30th March 7pm…
Enrol hereDates for your DiaryApril is shaping up to be a busy month, despite there being the Easter break. We restart our book club series after Easter on Thursday 8th April. Many of you have enjoyed playing with the wonderful violinist Peter Fisher in the past and will jump at the chance to “Listen or Play Along” while he performs Ravel’s stunning “Tzigane” for us on Monday 12th April. Peter is a renowned exponent of the works of Fritz Kreisler and promises to include some of these ever popular pieces in his programme too. Amy Yule returns to our online programme with a “Listen or Play Along” to Mozart G major flute concerto on Thursday 22nd April. We decided against having a Concert Party in April (as it was already so busy) and so the next concert party will be on Saturday 1st May. We already have a few performers lined up but we’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in performing – especially if you haven’t yet performed!All events start at 7pm, and you can find out more in our Events Diary.
